Free Members’ Workshop: Cartographic Creativity: Using Maps in Art

During this one day, hands on workshop participants will explore the use of maps in collage and mixed media art. Through a series of quick exercises focusing on the colors, lines and shapes within maps they will learn to look at them in new ways and discover how to use them as source material for both representational and abstract work. The class will be a fun exploration of the creative use of maps, designed to give participants techniques and ideas to use in the future.

This workshop is for artists of all levels and no collage or mixed media experience is necessary. Participants are encouraged to bring any atlases, maps or other cartographic sources that they are willing to cut up; plenty of them will also be provided.
